Muslim women dating rules
The most powerful verses commanding the believers to be modest occur in Surah al-Nur and begin with the words: "Say to the believing men that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty; that will make for greater purity for them: and Allah is well aware of what they do." The rule of modesty is equally applicable to men and women.
A brazen stare by a man at a woman or another man is a breach of correct behavior.
In the family, the man is charged with the duty of being the leader of the family and the woman is assigned the duty of looking after the household.
Even if the man has more responsibility than the woman and thereby has a degree over her, it does not make a husband inherently better than his wife.
The word as used in the above verse seems to include both meanings.However, if she wishes to restrict his freedom in this regard or to have similar rights, she is legally allowed to do so.She may stipulate in the marital agreement that she too will have the right to divorce or that she will keep the marriage bond only so long as she remains the only wife.If there arises a conflict between this right of the husband and the rights of the wife's parents to visit her and be visited by her, the husband's right prevails in the wider interest of the family.Yet the Shari'ah recommends that he be considerate enough to waive his rights to avoid shame within the family.
